Mission Statement

The Mission of National Church Residences is to provide quality housing and care at affordable prices in communities of caring persons. Our ministry is national in scope and originates from a Christian commitment of service to older adults, which began in 1961. We have become a leading name in senior services, retirement community management and support for people in need. While our ministry has been targeted primarily toward older adults, we have special concern for low- and moderate-income seniors, persons with disabilities, and low- and moderate-income families. We are committed to expanding and funding services in assisted living, nursing homes, and full-service retirement communities. We also plan for thoughtful growth in affordable family housing.
